I’m a country boy who loves the outdoors. As I write this, I’m on day 18 of a camping trip (in a camper, not a tent. I said I love the outdoors, not that I’m insane); as I write this, this is the view from my office (see tweet below). At home, I live on my front porch and eat only that which can be grilled.

Oh, on more than one occasion I have tried living life in a filthy, disgusting, litter-ridden Democrat-run city. Never again, baby! Only Red States for me, where the air is fresh, where the water is clean, where the trees are lush, and where you can enjoy all of it while carrying a loaded gun.
Now, I am no environmentalist, which is just a fancy word for Statist Fascist. What I am is a nature lover, someone who within reason and logic and actual science believes in cleanliness and preservation; someone who believes so much in the American Spirit, there is no doubt in my mind (and history and science back me up) that this can all be accomplished without stripping free men of their liberty, their way of life and prosperity.
And this is why, like all red-blooded Americans, I despise electric cars.
As a great man once said, Let’s face it. Electric cars are totally gay. I don’t mean gay as in homosexual gay, I mean “My parents are chaperoning the dance” gay. In this media-created era of the “Inhuman Reign of the Lie,” we are not supposed to, or even allowed to say such things, but we all know it’s true.
First off, electric cars are driven mostly by smug, jerk-offs who believe that the simple act of sitting in a Prius makes them superior to the rest of us.
But I also hate the LIE of the electric car, the lie that electric cars reduce the carbon footprint, the lie that they do not burn fossil fuel. What kind of moron convinces himself that the electricity that fuels an electric car emanates from a Magic Leprechaun as opposed to burning fossil fuels. Oh.
Even more than that, though, is what a country full of covered golf carts would signify. Primarily, it would signify that we have been suckered and/or bullied into conforming to the anti-science lie, the left-wing hustle, the CNN propaganda. It would also signify that as a country we had surrendered our can-do spirit to a dystopic world filled with 40 mph sameness. Because that is not America. In America we figure it out — we always find a way to preserve our freedom, our God-given right to own a muscle car in a world filled with fresh air and clean water.
And actually, except for those Democrat-run cities, we pretty much have.
Out here on the open road, the roomy SUV rules, the 4-wheel drive, 8-cylinder pickup truck owns, and lines and lines of semis rumble by like giant trains that circle the entire world. And yet, somehow, even with millions more cars and trucks on the road, our air and water is cleaner today than it was forty years ago. Moreover, the overall American environment is much cleaner today and a heluva lot cleaner than those undeveloped, third world countries — you know, those countries the Left fights tooth-and-nail to remain undeveloped because “sustainable.”
And here’s the true miracle: when you figure inflation, gas today is more than a dollar a gallon cheaper than it was when I first started driving in 1983. From $3.07 a gallon to the average of about $2.03 I’ve paid all along this trip. Except for the leftwing Maryland, of course, where gas was as high as $2.40. Nevertheless, the Left keeps telling me we are running out of natural resources, and yet the price keeps dropping.
Not to belabor the point but America has more trees today than we did a hundred years ago.
